Ministerial Standing Form
Dear Colleague in Ministry,
It is time once again for all Ohio ordained and commissioned ministers, active and/or retired, to submit our 2021 Request for Standing Form. In keeping with the Policies and Criteria for the Order of the Ministry, the Ohio Commission on Ministry is responsible for reviewing and certifying the standing of all ordained ministers, commissioned ministers, and ordained ministerial partners serving in the Christian Church in Ohio. Every year clergy are required to complete this form to renew ministerial standing.
LOGIN & PASSWORD INSTRUCTIONS
The Standing Form includes an individual "Login" and Password" (created by you) and the ability for you to manage personal updates at any time (such as address changes, cell phone, and email). The best feature is that once you have completed the 2021 "Request for Standing" form, your personal data will be saved and available for submitting the "Request for Standing" form for following years to come.
After clicking on one of the “Request for Standing” links at the bottom of the page, you will notice the * symbols by the fields that indicate information is required. This information must be filled out before you can move to the next page. Note: Under the "e-mail address" there is a "Password" required field. If you have completed this online form in the past, you will need to enter the email address and password you have used before. If you have not, then it will ask you to create a password.
By returning the "Request for Standing” form, you enable the Commission on Ministry to be better acquainted with you personally, your ministry, and to update our regional records. Every form will be carefully read and prayerfully considered by the members of the Standing Team of the Ohio Commission on Ministry. The information you provided last year was taken seriously and handled confidentially. By this review process, when your standing is certified for 2021, your name and address are listed in the Ministers Directory portion of the Annual Yearbook and Directory of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ.)
Please be sure to also review the "My Ministerial Code of Ethics.” As part of the 2021 renewal process, all ministers are to read this document and affirm its contents. Your willingness to comply with the Code of Ethics will be indicated by your answer to a specific statement in the Standing Form.
The deadline for you to complete this form is Thursday, December 31, 2020.
